The June 2016 winning design is a kitchen designed for a busy family that loves to entertain. The customer requested a large entertaining space where friends and family could gather and participate in cooking and food preparation.
The project involved expansion of the existing undersized and somewhat dark kitchen, with an addition extending out into a terrace area. This allowed for a spacious food prep area and more natural light, creating a space that blends seamlessly with the character and proportions of the home.
This spectacular kitchen contains two 48” Viking Gas 7-Series Ranges back to back, two 48” Viking Chimney Hoods back to back, a Viking dishwasher and two 48” Viking Built-in Side by Side Refrigerator/Freezers with a 30” Viking Electric Double Oven in between.
